LD Series Autonomous Mobile Robots
Self-navigating Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR)
The Omron LD Mobile Robot is a self-navigating Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) designed for dynamically moving material in challenging environments that may include confined passageways as well as dynamic and peopled locations. Unlike traditional autonomously guided vehicles (AGVs), Omron Mobile Robot requires no facility modifications, such as floor magnets or navigational beacons, saving users deployment costs. The LD includes Omron’s proprietary software and controls allowing it to intelligently navigate around people and unplanned obstacles, that render traditional AGVs incapacitated and it can be programmed and functional within a day. Designed for developers, integrators, and end-users the system can be customized for a variety of applications and payloads. Manufacturing, warehousing, clean tech and laboratories are just a few environments ideal for the mobile robot.
The World’s Most Popular Mobile Robot Solution
Compatible with other OMRON robots, mobile robot fleets and MES systems.
Optimizes routing and adapts to changing conditions on the fly.
Works safely with people and has an intuitive setup.
Fully autonomous intelligent vehicles
Our mobile robots are fully autonomous intelligent vehicles that increase throughput, reduce machine dwell time, eliminate errors, improve material traceability, and allow employees to focus on tasks that require complex human skills. What’s more, unlike traditional AGVs, our mobile robots navigate by the natural features of the facility and require no expensive facility modification.
OMRON mobile robots are easy to get up and running, requiring no construction such as the installation of magnets, and minimal programming. In addition, our software integrates with your other systems so you can get the solution up and running in minimal time.
- No construction required
- Easy integration with MES, ERP, and WMS
- Enhanced security to comply with IT systems
- Autonomous navigation doesn’t require preset routes, magnets, or beacons
- Automatic software updates across fleet while maintaining continuous work flow
OMRON’s mobile solutions are extremely versatile and can be adapted to perform a wide variety of tasks and applications. With payloads ranging from 60kg to 250kg available in multiple form factors and protection ratings, LD series mobile robots are perfectly suited for most small to midrange material transport applications. We’re also scalable, so we can grow with your business.

AMR vs. AGV - The Difference is Flexibility
AGVs require a predefined path to follow, either a network of magnetic lines on the floor or beacons on the walls. So although AGVs allow modifications to production lines, facilities will need to install new equipment every time the AGV path is changed, leading to downtime and extra costs.
Unlike AGVs, which will stop at obstacles indefinitely, AMRs avoid stationary or moving obstacles and automatically reroute themselves when necessary. AMR paths automatically change without human intervention, making operations more flexible and decreasing total cost of ownership.
AMRs can safely navigate without the use of floor magnets or wall-mounted beacons. An AMR will first create a baseline map of a facility using built-in sensors, then will constantly detect its surroundings. When processes change, AMRs can easily change as well, creating networks of new routes or being reassigned to new tasks.
